Summer Camp for High School Students in Houston

Summer is right around the corner and now is the time to start thinking about summer plans for your child. Below are important tips on how to pick the right summer camp for your child:

  1. Discuss with your child what camp he or she would be interested in going to. Get their input and discuss available options.
    1. Academic camps
    2. Adventure camps
    3. Arts camps
    4. Sports Camps
    5. Theater camp
    6. Technology camp – Robots and coding
    7. Religious Camps
    8. Science camps

If you know your child suffers during the school year in academics then summer might be a good time to take an academic camp. For example: if your child did not score well in last year’s math course or struggled through it, you can register your child to take a few math camp sessions that focus on developing math skills and get ahead in their upcoming math class.
